Are you in for the People's Climate March?

Are you in for the People's Climate March?

As world leaders meet in Paris for the United Nations climate summit, we will gather in Australian cities and walk alongside millions of people in hundreds of major cities around the world. By walking together we can show our new Prime Minister that his government is out of step with the Australian community and the rest of the world.

We will march to show that we want an end to fossil fuels and a planned transition to 100% renewable energy. We will march to demand our politicians back all communities that are building a better, safer and fairer future for all. We will march because from here on in, we’re all in.

Join thousands of Australians on November 27-29, as we march for a transition to renewable energy, for secure job creation, for clean air, for a healthy environment and a safe climate.

If you want a new economy that works for people and the planet, make sure you’re in.

If you want to show the world that Australians want to do our bit, make sure you’re in.

If you’re sick of our government trying to hold back renewables and block out the sun, make sure you’re in.

Join your community in a colourful, vibrant, fun and united display of people power. Sign up to say you’re in, and make this moment as big and powerful as it needs to be:

As Australians, we’re all in. Because we’re more powerful when we stand together. We are Indigenous peoples, farmers, firefighters, union members, health workers, grandparents, grandchildren, neighbours, and faith leaders. We’re thinkers, dreamers, innovators, and doers.

A world free of dangerous global warming, and the poverty and inequalities it brings, is within our reach. Together we can show the world Australians care, and we’re all in

We are already taking action in our communities to protect the things we love. Over 5 million  Aussies power their homes with solar, farmers and Traditional Owners are saying no to mining on their land, and millions of Australians are calling for leadership from our politicians to support a planned transition away from coal and gas.

Pollution drives climate change and hurts people. It hurts our health, our economy, our jobs, our food, water, environment and communities. But climate change doesn’t impact everyone equally - most often those who did the least to cause the problem feel the impacts first, worst and hardest, like our brothers and sisters in the Pacific.

Australians want to see a planned transition to clean, renewable energy. Australians want to see thousands of new jobs and investment in renewable energy, and a shift to a new economy.

In the shift from dirty old energy to clean renewable energy, there’s incredible momentum, and all the barriers have been solved - except one. Our government is bewitched by the big polluters, and putting their short-term profits ahead of the good of the Australian people.

Renewable energy is winning the race against dirty, polluting fossil fuels like coal and gas. Every day, people across Australia and across the world are moving themselves out of the fossil fuel era and into a sun-powered future. The momentum for clean energy is unstoppable. We have the technology. We have the solutions.

People, businesses and even whole cities are starting to thrive off new, safe and affordable energy powered entirely by the sun, wind and water.

As the sunniest country in the world and one of the windiest, Australia can power ahead on renewable energy and reap huge benefits - a safe climate, clean air, cheaper energy, thousands of new jobs in a planned transition away from fossil fuels, and a more resilient economy. At the same time, we can do our bit and support the world’s poorest communities and our Pacific neighbours through this crisis.

This is a historic moment, a chance to show our government that we are leading and they must follow. So from here on in, we’re all in.

We are all in, all over the world – part of a global gathering of everyday people calling on leaders to tackle climate change and make the transition to a brighter, fairer, clean energy future. We say to world leaders: from here on in we’re all in – are you?
